Just like fashion, fads in food come and go. A few years ago, there was a rumour that cabbage soup was trending (that would have been like the 90s for fashion). Depending on where you live, the list varies. Each region has got its own quirky ideas and favourites. And after analysing quite a few of these lists, we’ve put together our own list – one that we would love to follow!
Home cooked food, home grown veggies, home brewed anything – if it carries the prefix, ‘home’, we love it! You just can’t deny the simple goodness of anything made at home. It is fresh, full of flavour, made with lots of care and love – and is definitely more nutritious than packaged food. We are particularly in love with the idea of home grown veggies. It isn’t very hard. You’ll need a few pots of good soil, seeds, some patience and TLC, and voila – you’ve got yourself a kitchen garden. Basic herbs, chilli, tomatoes, leafy veggies, ginger, garlic are all quite easy to grow.
As Indians we are no strangers to street food. But this new avatar of street food is simply inspired and elevated. You can find food trucks dishing up a range of cuisines – from French crepes and sandwiches to gourmet handcrafted burgers.
These are more like meal boxes. They are packed with fresh ingredients and your daily does of nutrition. An easy-to-follow recipe comes along with them and you can whip up a home cooked meal in no time.
It’s a crime to waste good food. With culinary Gods like Jamie Oliver teaching you how to make optimal use of food and how to stow away leftovers, you can learn to cook and eat more responsibly.
Food in your cocktails might sound a bit strange, but these cocktails have been taking the culinary world by storm for some time now. They are imaginative, innovative and infused with dramatic new flavours. They also push the bounds in terms of textures.
Who doesn’t love a long, lazy lunch? But drinking in the afternoon may not always be such a great idea. Unless you have a ’session cocktail’. These are lower on alcohol content and pair great with bar nibbles.
Happy Diwali, folks!Are you hosting a party to celebrate the festival of lights with your friends and family? We’re sure you’re serving them your specials. But may we suggest an addition? We promise you – this one’s a total firecracker
Diwali is just days away. While we love traditions and festive favourites, we can’t resist a little spin on the regular stuff. Topping our list this season, is the trusty samosa. Stuffed with aloo, caramelized onions, peas, or spiced lentils, this snack is versatile and can be found served in households across the country.
Oh, how we love this time of the year! The brilliant marigolds that grace each home, the sounds of laughter and chatter that fill the air, the endless streams of friends and family who just drop by, and of course, the wonderful traditional delicacies that get made. We love how guests are greeted, with a … Continue reading Lavender White Chocolate Truffles
Come September, India is abuzz with festive preparations and celebrations. With guests dropping in at all hours, shopping for the big day, getting your home ready, you often end up with lesser and lesser time to spend in the kitchen.
Tacos have been a la mode for a while now. From the culinary geniuses at Michelin star restaurants to the mavericks who run food trucks, they have captured the imagination of chefs the world over.

Experimenting with wine and food is one of our favourite pastimes. And to create easy, simple, yet incredible recipes (that anyone can make at home), we partner with some of the best bloggers in India. Our latest love is for tacos (well, they’re trending the world over, and we can’t get enough of them either).
For the warm tropical climes of India, white wines may be a great idea. They’re generally lighter than reds in terms of alcohol levels. They pair well with a wide variety of food. And they’re a great substitute for an ice-cold beer, as they’re lower in carbs. We can get you started on an incredible exploration of white wines.
Have you ever felt the need for a quick cocktail after a hard day’s work? To kick up your feet, empty your mind of all the noise, and just sip on a simple drink? We’ve got just the fix for this craving. You won’t need to look too far for the ingredients
When a sommelier describes a wine in the most poetic terms, you almost feel a twinge of envy. You wonder how one divines all those notes, and wish in all earnestly to sound just as pro as him.
As the makers of some of the finest Indian wines, we are often asked this question.
